Happy Monday! I hope you all had a fantastic weekend. I promised an update on my Wardrobe Rescue Mission last week so here it is.
The end of the first week of my rescue mission was Friday and when I got on the scale I was pleasantly surprised with a three pound weight loss! Honestly, the first week always seems to be the easiest but I’m still thrilled. So, how did I do it? Well, I tracked everything I was eating and all of my activities with Myfitnesspal.com and here is what the week looked like:

As far as my food went, I really tried to focus on lots of fruits and veggies. Also, you should probably know, I don’t eat red meat or pork ever so many of my days were full on vegetarian. I’m a big fan of avocados, eggs, fruit and big salads. Additionally, I hate feeling like I’m totally restricted even when I’m trying to be super health conscious so if you looked at my diary you would see a chocolate cupcake I had to taste test before giving the batch to my Dad for Father’s Day, a slice of pizza and a beer at a concert I attended on Wednesday, a few peanut M&M’s from the work place candy dish, and a couple of non-fat chai tea lattes on the mornings I just couldn’t get going without some caffeine and a cozy cup.

So, what is my plan going forward? Well, the weekend was busy since Saturday I ran in the Mayor’s Marathon Five Miler Race and Sunday I finished moving (three flights of stairs down at my old apartment and three flights up at the new house). Today I’m planning on yoga and a run, hiking Tuesday, yoga Wednesday, and a soccer game Thursday night. Wow, I’m gonna get back in my skinny jeans in no time.
